  2. Thanks for a great trip story. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
  3. Geoffrey. Are you trying to sell a CS 17 or buy one?
  4. Thanks Graham. I will put Oct 19 on my calendar. Please start a new thread for 2018 as soon as you have set the date.
  5. Has a date been set for the 2018 Messabout? Trying to get my calendar set up so I can hopefully make it. dale
  6. When rolling the sail on the mast and using it as a way to reef, how do you plan to keep the sail from unrolling? I don't remember if it was specified on the plans or not but I am pretty certain that I kept the same angle on the third mast hole. I have a feeling that whoever built your boat made the same mistake on the third position as on the main mast.
  7. I have a center mast step on my CS 17 Lively. I have only used it once and that was just a test to see how well it worked. It worked fine but almost immediately decided that I would prefer to have a good slab reefing system using the normal sail plan. My sails were sleeved at that time. I had them resewn for a sail track and slab reefing. Basically, I do some beach cruising so want to be able to handle highly variable wind conditions. Pulling out a mast and moving it to a new position in my opinion is not an option when the wind is blowing 15+ mph. I am speaking about the CS 17, it may be easier to do on the BRS 15.
  8. Thank you William, Tom and Chick. I appreciate your continuing ideas. Once temps here get somewhere near reasonable instead of 95+ in my garage, I think I will attempt to make the main mast be able to rotate on my CS 17m3 'Summer Breeze' and maybe even think about adding a tabernacle with rotation to my CS 17 'Lively'.
  9. Steve, Sent you a message. Let me know what you think. dale
  10. Hey dale what prop do run on salty? i am running the same engine and going through the prop sizing thing.

  11. Steve, My son has left for HI so I will be deciding this weekend on a price for Salty. I will let you know. I might consider your 12 as a down payment. I have been lusting one like yours for a long time. In fact ever since I saw you sailing it at St Michaels, MD. Maybe we could make a deal that would save you some cash. dale
  12. I like your idea William but it would seem to have a great amount of stress on the hinge. It would have to be very strongly constructed. Do you have any drawings or more specific ideas. With the typical unstayed mast they have a lot of flex. It seems that the hinge would distort the bending. What size is your mast? Wood, Alum or carbon fiber?
